Hello Friends, in this post I will tell you how to connect custom domain to your blogger website in an easy step. We know that the most famous platform for blogging is the blogger.com which is owned by Google. This platform is absolutely free for creating blogs and publishing them online on the internet.

Benefits of Buying Custom Domain


Custom domain not only gives branding and professional look to your blog or website but it has more additional importance and features.
